energy is reverberating, is the way i can describe it, and there's, like, something that you could feel it but you can't see it. so there's things that are unfolding, so maybe if it's something lyrical, say like i'm in the middle of writing something, or i'm with a collaborator and we're working on something, working on some ideas and we're kind of, and you can feel that there's an energy that's going back and forth and it's going back and forth. then that leads you to the next thing, like okay, well, when this is done we have to go in there and make sure that we put, like let me put this piano down so i can put the next thing. and wait, could you put some, do you hear some -- and it's just like an energy that's happening that -- tavis: so it's clicking, yeah. >> everything starts leading to the next thing, and basically what happens is you don't pay attention to the time anymore. tavis: i got it.

information about the kinds of injuries and what sort of energies and what are the source of the injuries? it kind of reminded me in a meeting yesterday. i was around in the 1970's. the only guy who can remember this -- i hope i am not insulting him -- is ray lahood. he remembers the auto industry. he remembers the whole question of traffic safety and highway safety. there was a big fight when i first got in the senate that began in the late 1960 fell through early 1970's. the automobile industry did not want to allow the department of transportation to acquire statistics on the type of accidents that occur. they were not able to literally acquire the information. because the concern was it would lead to calls for some rational regulations for the guardrails for automobiles. i remember when we finally broke through and the department of transportation started keeping misinformation, they found out -- if my memory is correct -- the vast majority of drivers -- the steering wheel damage to their solar plexus, penetrated their upper body cavity, damaged their heart. the reason the industry di
